Oatmeal container Lace


Opening up a new container of oatmeal- I realized that this plastic piece that I pulled off the lid would make a very nice lace. It has a large round piece on the end that keeps the lacing in place.












Then the ring can be used to hang the shape or ornament to the window or on a holiday tree.

Trash Menagerie at Peabody Museum in Salem


Totally enjoyed the art exhibit at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts. Lots of creations out of laundry bottles, but much more as you will see. I will add photos as time permits.

He started by pulling trash objects apart, until his parents suggested he try putting them together instead. He has developed his own technique for assembly trash using nails, bolts and screws.
